Man who filmed shooting death of Ahmaud Arbery arrested


GLYNN COUNTY, Ga. (KRON) — A third person has been arrested in connection with the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced Thursday.

The GBI arrested William “Roddie” Bryan Jr., 50, on charges of felony murder and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment. He will be booked into the Glynn County Jail.

Bryan Jr. reportedly filmed cellphone video of Arbery’s death.

25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery was shot and killed while jogging in Brunswick, Georgia on Feb. 23. by a father and son. More than two months passed before authorities arrested Gregory McMichael and his son, Travis McMichael, on charges of felony murder and aggravated assault.

The duo was arrested and charged with the murder of Arbery on May 7. They were both charged with murder and aggravated assault.

The McMichaels were taken into custody and will be booked into the Glynn County Jail.
